“An overpriced stall for the night”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for a night only in anticipation of a next day flight. Chaos, disorder and filth - if we had to sum our stay up in 3 words.

First the parking was disorganized - people were parking wherever there was black top and our impression was that management didn`t seem to care - I`m guessing the Fire Marshall might have had something to say.

Check-out and departure from the hotel was even worse as the drive to the entrance was blocked by tour busses, and there were insufficient staff at the front desk to close accounts. Again an apparent lack of interest by management.

Walking into our room was like walking back in time to an apartment in the 70`s. Filthy, dim, old stained rugs and furnishings, washroom tile in poor repair and poorly repaired.

Foyer looks nice - but that was the extent of capital expenditures on site.

The experience was like staying in a room in a rental house in the east part of town somewhere. Apparent lack of interest in quality or comfort - Just neon lights at checkout.
I`ll never stay at another Sandman.

Room Tip: For a good room, stay somewhere else. Many choices adjacent. We took a suite and were very disappoin...

We checked in here at about 11:00pm after an epic fail at a trendy downtown hotel. They matched the hotels.com rate, and we were happy with that. Parking was 12.00 which I thought was excessive, but hey, it's Toronto. There's a Moxie's attached which is great. Our room had a king bed, small kitchen, and a sitting area as well. It was clean and spacious. Check in and out was quick and efficient. No major complaints, would definitely stay again.

Quiet / priced right / friendly / clean / restaurant in site / free shuttle service to the airport / free parking while away / will certainly use again & recommend to others. The restaurant is a bit pricey but it is right on site which is very helpful.

Room Tip: Moxies restaurant is a bit pricey but excellent.

shuttle service is very convenient and it's very frequent. i really like the room decor, modern, simple and crisp lean feel. the room we stayed has a kitchen and big fridge. since the location is a little far from the city, we bought grocery during our stay. some people may feel the location is a little far, since it's near the airport. but we think it's a great benefit. toronto downtown traffic is really bad and it's very hard to find parking spot. here at Sandman it's easy to park.

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the last two years. It is convenient to the airport, but the shuttle is somewhat unpredictable. I've always had a kitchenette which is handy. The room itself is nice enough, but could use an update. The mattress is a bit saggy and the bedding is nothing special. The restaurant, Moxie's, has a wonderful atmosphere. The bar is also nice and open. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Overall, the hotel has great potential. It's just not living up to it at this time.

Stopping over on way to Maritimes. Shuttle information not clear at airport but when reported was told this is beyond their control as had to come through Airport Authority. Bed was comfortable and all staff helpful and cheerful, no question was to insignificant to respond to.restaurant food good but noise level too high. Amenities listing book was difficult to read if the lighting was inadequate. A more distinct colour difference in the script would have been helpful.
